Tonja Green: I bought the LG800 at the end of June, it's the middle of September & the
touchscreen is malfunctioning. When I push an app, the app 2 rows over
comes up. I can't access my messages or most of my phones apps & content.
It's an ok phone but, cheaply made.
Kevin Siraki: It wont work, you need 4 gigabytes or lower.
ninjetta100: can u use this phone for email without wasting minutes. (yahoo,gmail etc..)
bestprep11: From the home screen, go to second screen of icons (swipe sideways) and
select Profiles and touch and hold the current profile. Below where it says
"Voice Call Ringtone" again select. Then navigate through the Sounds folder
(use the little red slider dot on the right) until you find the mp3 file
you want to use as the ringtone and save.
SMBrunker1991: Does this phone get youtube and music downloader apps?
bestprep11: @DannyL216 Hi. No, you can't text while playing music. When you create
message, you get an alert that "Music will stop" (not pause). Then you have
to go back and start the music player again. That's a good point you
raised. As for the wire - it's just a USB to micro (not mini) USB cable.
Both cable and memory available online and retail. I find the virtual
keyboard OK for texting - i.e. I don't hit the wrong key. I don't text a
lot so I can say about speed.
Maura Beach: yes, go to messages and then go to settings, then signature, and add
signature and type it.
bestprep11: @ninjetta100 Sorry, no. You can check your yahoo gmail etc over the phone's
web browser but it will use your airtime.
bestprep11: @gamers4lifestudios When you go to the maps.google.com via the phone's
browser, you get a link to download the maps application.
13jalon: its alright iv droped mine at least 10 times pretty hard and it didnt brake
strawberryfizz08: Thank you for getting back with me. I got this phone on Amazon.com instead
of Tracfone.com, so maybe it could be an older model without that feature
or something. Either way, it's disappointing! :/ Thanks for your help,
Quinsanity09: so the mobile web he went to does not deduct minutes because he said the
one on the homepage dose but didnt really say much more
MobileTechnology Reviews: Really? That's weird! My LG 840g must have it in a different place
TheMw3killa: I got this phone 2 years ago the calibration is weird and if you press the
lock button when it's locked it'll unlock it and I've been pocket texting,
calling, and the camera has been opening. I use it to text a lot but it
isn't the best for that I would give it a 6/10 for a good phone but
hopefully im gonna get a iPhone 5 soon ;P
ttwarrior1: 1 min of internet is 2 minutes according to qvc , they are selling it now
for 99 with 1200 min added
Ricky Newman: While playing a game, will it deduct my minutes?
TheAdorkableGurl: how long can the video be? can you watch youtube videos?
yjj07: do you have a video on how to download apps and music from the tracfone web
site? i have the lg800 and i keep triying to but its not working and
custermer service keeps saying try again in a day. my phones been activaded
for about 1 week. i rilly can't get any where with them. would you have any
Fernando Portilla: 1:40 that is the antenna that recieves the signal!
bestprep11: Haven't officially tested 840g, but it has WiFi and the 800g doesn't.
Haley Horsley: LG 800G or Motorola EX124G? still deciding! HELP! @bestprep11
Kate Hunter: what would happen if you put a 8g in their
bestprep11: That's a tough one. I would probably choose the EX124G for the ability to
check email accounts. It does require using the stylus however, which is
kind of old-fashioned nowadays. 800g is good, too. Main drawback is that,
unlike the 500g, you can't use the 800g's music player while texting.
bestprep11: Yes, there's a small post beneath the battery cover to wrap the end of the
wrist strap around. Some else pointed out that the object I mentioned is
bestprep11: Takes small 176 x 144 videos. Duration depends on the amount of storage -
presumably longer if you have a memory card installed. For good quality
video you can use one of the newer smart phones or a separate video camera,
even a simple flip video camera.
avp_tactical: kevin calm down
bestprep11: It is a GSM phone, so it does have a SIM card, but you cannot swap the card
out for another service provider - AT&T, T-Mobile etc. You can't even swap
out a Tracfone SIM for a Net10 SIM card or vice versa even though they're
basically the same company. There is also a slot for the microSD card under
the battery for inserting a memory card for your photos and music.
bestprep11: That's right.
WhyiTzDaedae: @XBurnz666 You cannot watch youtube sadly.
WatDaMattaForYou: One other question......does the voice recorder record multiple messages,
or just 1 message at a time?
bestprep11: It's on the second screen. Swipe the home screen to the left to access the
Ricky Newman: ok thanks
jennifer sherban: opera mini version for LG800g smartphone
bestprep11: @Cman524 Both good. Ex124g has an email client. I prefer the size and
screen of the 800g even though it's smaller.

Bjcampbell6: this phone sucks
XBurnz666: just ordered this phone gettin it on thursday... anyone know if u can watch
CaptainLMAO FTS: You can access email such as Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail via webpage log-in.
However the connection is extremely unstable if you're in motion or moving
the phone around. This makes simple tasks such as deleting messages,
replying or composing new emails a huge pain. It isn't worth the hassle to
be honest. I bought this phone thinking it would replace my old cell
provider. I have 1730 mins on it still, and it sits un-used in my glove
box. It remains a top 5 awful purchase on my part.
Cameo Baggett: this phone suck fo real
strawberryfizz08: Hi there. I just got an LG 800G for Tracfone. Watching your video helped me
make the decision. However, I don't have a QWERTY keypad. When I go to
messaging as you do in the video, it's like a regular keypad where you can
use T9. I really don't like that!! Do you know why this might be? Help if
you can. Your video is very informative otherwise! :) Thank you.
Haley Horsley: thanks!!!!!!!! i think im getting the LG! tankchu:)
Beccaluvs94: Does this phone play youtube videos?????
bestprep11: @DannyL216 No Youtube as far as I know.
yjj07: can you set music as a ringtone for the lg800g? if so how? if you don't
mind explaining. thnx
Looseylin: I have the Lg800 and am having trouble with the touchscreen and on the web,
I feel like throwing it thru the window I'm so frustrated!
April TracFone: Hi MobileTechnology Reviews, This is April from TracFone Wireless. It is
the antenna. But, if that is not what you are referring. Please email us at
TF.CorpResolutionTeam@tracfone.com to better assist you. Thank you.
jarvis fields: I dont know why you asking me
bestprep11: @tata21tata Go to web page in description and scroll down to near the
bottom - you'll see a link to detailed instructions called "How To Get
Music On This Stupid Phone (LG 800g)"
